Some points to discuss from Padraig Gleeson

  • Give people an update on the draft NeuroML version 2 examples as updated following the NeuroML meeting in Arizona in March.
  • Get feedback from SBML people on overall style of new version, specification methods (Schema or UML), libNeuroML (C++ & Swig or Java...)
  • To discuss with SBML people the process towards a more formalised specification of v2 (e.g. drafts of individual parts (morphologies, channels) sent to the NeuroML mailing list, feedback, a wider draft specification to the comp neuro community, feedback including demo impls, appointing editors, production of new specification).
  • Technical discussion on SBML support (hooks/pointers to model elements in SBML from NeuroML models; how this can be reused for model elements in CellML/NineML).
